    Default My first greenstell item - what a puzzle

    Hello

    I think i have all the ingredients for making my first green steel item. I wanna make a 45 hp item with displacement clicky.
    But it is very hard to figure out which item to make.

    Do you guys make multiple, some for mid level and some for high level?
    I wanted to try and make it fit for most builds and this is what I've got:
    Ravenloft:
    Beacon of magic: Armor, waist, gloves
    Knight of the shadow: Armor, waist, eye
    Crypt raider: Armor, neck, trinket – not needed
    silent avenger: armor, cloak, waist
    Adherent of the mist: Belt, boots, bracers, cloak, Gloves, goggles, necklaces, rings.

    You have:
    3*Belts, 1*Boots, 1*Bracers, 2*Cloak, 2*Gloves, 2*Goggles, 0*Helms, 2*Necklaces, 1*Rings.

    Sharn:
    Arcsteel battlemage: Armor, helm, gloves
    Esoteric Initiate: Armor, bracers, goggles - Needed
    Flamecleansed Fury: Armor, cloak, bracers
    Guardian of the Gates: Armor, helm, necklace - Needed
    Hruit's Influence: Armor, necklace, gloves
    Part of the Family: Armor, necklace, gloves - Needed
    Wallwatch: Armor, helm, gloves - Needed

    You have:
    Belts, Boots, 1*Bracers, Cloak, 2*Gloves, 1*Goggles, 2*Helms, 2*Necklaces, Rings.

    So for ravenloft gear helms are best and for sharn belts are best.

    Any advice?

    The wiki is kinda a morass, too dense for someone new to the system. I've been thinking about a complete re-vamp for a while. :/

    First, there are only 2 ML's for GS items, ML 11 (12 for a weapon) and ML 26. So nothing in between. But, yes, most ML 11/12 items do not scale well for CL 26+.

    Second...

    ... an item that you wear should have full-time effects - and there is no reason to wear a clickie (unless you could argue that you need the effect "on demand" - which Displacement is not).

    That would be great, but only if you have time.

    Yes i can see i wasn't clear on what i meant. I mean do you make some items that fit with ravenloft gear and another item that fits with sharn gear?

    The tier 2 bonus effect only has 3 effects that are always on:
    1) Balance of land and sky
    2) Existential stalemate
    3) Tempered

    Do you suggest i take one of those instead of displacement?

    I can't speak as to a "preferred" high-level gear-out - I've rarely parked there (and only recently bought Sharn), so don't have a go-to (yet).

    Ah (don't have it memorized, sorry) - well, obviously, ~only~ if one would/might be somehow helpful to your current or a future build (and you have the mats to spare!).

    It's easy enough to do a quick swap for displacement or other clickies. (I recommend a staff, since some few classes get a small bonus w/ staffs - Wiz's and Arti's, iirc??? But if you're never going to ER and go there, then it doesn't matter. Make it a falchion just for appearances (and so you never get confused what's currently equipped!), all same same.)
